This is an auction for GRAHAM HENRY: FINAL WORD by Bob Howitt.

"After the All Blacks crashed out of the 2007 World Cup at the quarter-final stage, Graham Henry thought his time as an international rugby coach was up. The NZRU had never reappointed a losing World Cup coach and he couldn't see why they would make an exception for him. That is, until he began preparing his coach's report, which involved a detailed analysis of the video of that fateful quarter-final. What he uncovered would contribute to his reappointment, which was not without controversy. With his coaching partners Wayne Smith and Steve Hansen, he would go on to make the All Blacks the most successful team in the world, bringing joy to the 'stadium of four million' when they claimed the Rugby World Cup in 2011. How they rebuilt the All Blacks - establishing a leadership group, developing the players' mental strength and preparing for a Dan Carter 'worst case scenario' - makes enthralling reading. Although Graham can claim to be rugby's most successful coach, having maintained an 83 per cent success rate across four decades and more than 550 matches, there were times when he was almost down and out. He quit the UK after the Lions tour flop and a 50-point loss by Wales, and he was devastated by events at Cardiff at the 2007 Rugby World Cup. The story of how he rebounded to become the game's most esteemed coach makes this one of the most gripping sports books ever written."
